The Clippers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Nuggets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Clippers last 7 overall. The over is 4-0 in Nuggets last 4 overall. The under is 36-16-2 in the last 54 meetings.

The Los Angeles Clippers have the talent to be worth a look in the underdog role, but they continue to be hit or miss and the constant roster shuffling prevents any chance at chemistry. The Denver Nuggets are far more trustworthy, and they're great at home, where they win by an average of 9.2 points and shoot 52.1 percent from the field. I have no choice but to side with the Nuggets and the chalk.
